The Turing Test
"If a machine behaves as intelligently as a human being, then it is as intelligent as a human being."
Alan Turing was a brilliant original thinker, who studied and wrote on a whole spectrum of subjects, from philosophy and psychology through to physics, chemistry and biology. In the 1930s he conceived of a ‘universal machine’ which might carry out processes similar to thought processes using numbers, and suggested that such a machine should be called an electronic computer. During WWII, his ‘Bombe’ device allowed German wartime codes to be cracked and laid the foundations for the first electronic machines. In Manchester he contributed to building and programming the first all-electronic computer, and began the study of artificial intelligence.
Granted an OBE and Fellowship of the Royal Society, Turing died at home near Manchester after taking a bite from an apple poisoned with cyanide
